It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, so here you go!
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The first few chapters were “huh, that’s interesting, I wonder where this goes”. Then this book grabbed me and didn’t let me go until I finished it, about 24 hours later (I had to stop for dinner and sleep somewhere in there). I loved the wild ride and adrenaline rush, and even when some of the action scenes felt a little confusing on exactly what where how it almost didn’t matter because it just added to the chaos and panic and urgency of the attacks.
I loved the representation in this book, the queerness and Deafness and races were all lovely to see in there, and I shipped all the ships. I loved the sense of humor the teens had, the jokes they cracked, the relationships with each other they’d built. I loved the world-building, the setting, the history, and the complex political views that didn’t always agree with each other. I loved that this book felt like something written with care and passion.
I’m also really really really looking forward to the next one because OMG I NEED IT NOW PLEASE THANK YOU.
